I love the breathing exercises in this app and I want to give it five stars but I personally can't take how bright it is. I use it at night in bed and it's so brightly colored it distracts me and disturbs my sleeping partner. The night mode seems perfect but it changes back to the bright screens when the excercises start. If only it would keep the soothing dark screen during all excercises it would be the perfect app. If you use this only during the day you will love it.

Thanks for the review and feedback.
Honest answer: I'm taking that into account. Being a solo developer on a 100% free app is not easy, so I can't promise I'll deliver an update for the dark-mode anytime soon... but I'm taking notes! Thanks K :)
Fantastic app! The only thing missing is a vibrate setting for guided breathing so I don't disturb my wife while she sleeps. Maybe if the phone pulses once for in/out, twice for hold, the user can still keep track of the pattern without having to look at the phone or turn on the volume. Or maybe a high frequency pulse for breath in/out and a lower frequency for hold.

Hey there, thanks for the nice feedback! I thought about the vibration but yeah, it's a bit tricky to figure out an optimal way to make the pulsation pattern solid enough to be followed. I'll keep in mind your tip, which sounds interesting!
I once had a fitness tracker, since lost, that had a breathing exercise feature which was the only thing I missed about it. I've been searching for an app to replace it and Breathly is finally it! It's sleek and straightforward, while still being very attractive and customizable, and I find myself engaged seamlessly. Really beautiful, powerful app that I'll be getting highly acquainted with for all my pranayama needs.
